If you all recall, Julie and I proposed a book idea online on a blog specially made for the book, Hug-a-Blogger. Publishers thought it was cost prohibitive. We had it planned to take 3 weeks to cross the country and meet bloggers, have flash mobs of bloggers hugging, have meet and greets with other bloggers, interview special bloggers for the book and do a lot of online interactive things like roadside dares on Twitter and cheesy giveaways from crappy gift shops along the road, daily blogging about it on the Hug-A-Blogger blog and lots of videos and pics.
We still want to do it. We think it's a great idea to write about the people who blog, showcase them, their reasons for doing it, what they get out of it and give them their well earned hugs.
So, taking this in bites we can handle without backing by hotels and such, we'd like to cover bloggers here in Arizona where we live. This is do-able. We want to do all the same fun stuff online with social media, videos and pics daily on the blog and the release of the book on Kindle and Nook on the blog.
If anyone out there is an Arizona blogger or knows one, please comment here. We very much want to see if you and your blog might be ideal for our Hug-A-Blogger book.
